Short History

Regal Cinemas was founded in Knoxville, Tennessee, by Mike Campbell in the year of 1989. Actually, the first Regal Cinema movie theater was the Searstown Cinema in Titusville, Florida. This cinema became popular very fast thanks to the premium cafes, the upscale look, and the large size of its theaters. This great popularity along with an aggressive marketing campaign made Regal Cinemas greatly expand during the 1990s. It maintained its popularity along time by offering access to IMAX, 4DX, ScreenX, Regal Premium Experience (RPX), and movies in 3D along with premium concession items.

    I recently went to an evening movie with my family. We are all seniors. I used a ticket I purchased many years ago through AAA which was probably around $7. I had no problem.My mom purchased 5 senior tickets with a regal gift card which came to $52.75. My question is, why doesn’t Regal offer a significant discount for users of Regal gift cards or receive any perks. These cards are bought way in advance as well. I guess I’m trying to figure out why anyone would buy your gift cards if there is no perks.
